Publisher's Summary

Two FBI agents struggle with desire in the shadow of a killer, in the third installment of Aces & Eights.

Nate Gentry has been a rock for his two younger brothers since the day their mom walked out and left them with their abusive father. Now that they've grown up, he's watched Alex and Court fall in love and settle down. But Nate isn't made for romance. He keeps his relationships casual. And getting casual with his partner is a fantasy he can't shake...

Taylor Collins has feelings for Nate, too - and though they run hot, her best friend on the team is strictly off limits. Until a spark in his eyes says, Go for it. But reaching out could prove to be a bad move now that they're working closer together than ever, and on the most dangerous case of their careers.

An investigation into a brutal series of murders is stirring up bad memories for Taylor, and neither she nor Nate can imagine how close to home it's going to hit. When it does, Nate will risk everything - including his heart - to keep Taylor safe.

Story is Meh... Narration was good.

So yeah, this series started out so good with Jack of Hearts and since then just got kind of cheesy and barely okay. What a Bummer.

The story line is okay but the plot ended up being rather ridiculous. Really? After years all of a sudden Taylor has issues she never even knew about. DUMB!

I like the Gentry brothers and the undercover FBI agents owing a biker bar concept. But really? Why do you have to make these people have these inner demons that the aren't good enough for the other person and vice versa it is soooooo annoying!

Now, the sub plot that was snuck in about Nate trying to find their mother was way more interesting. It did leave an opening for a 4th book that I am hoping is good and not cheesy. A story with more story than sex is better. These aren't too extreme but definitely border on being in oversex drive.

As for the narration, it was good. I like both Sebastian York (I do wish he would work on his female voices though) and Amy McFadden. She does a good job on the male voices.

Another good one from Sandra Owens

The Gentry brothers are back with Nate's story although it works well as a standalone too. Nate and Taylor have been working together as FBI agents and run into a case that hits close to home for Taylor. Someone had been killing prostitutes and then dressing them up to be found. Taylor's mother had been killed as a prostitute years ago so this really upset Taylor. As the killer ramps up his killing spree, Nate and Taylor grow closer and try to stop him before it is too late. Good story, anxiously awaiting Kinsey's story.
